Information

 
TitleSyslog from XOS devices have no source IP or device name
Symptoms
syslog messages from EXOS devices do not have any source information associated with them in Netsight
Environment
  • NetSight
  • Console
  • Summit
  • EXOS
Cause
EXOS syslog does not include by default the IP in the syslog message. 
Netsight will use the IP from the syslog packet as source as long as the hostname is not used. (Tested with Netsight 7.0 and XOS 16.1.1)
Resolution
Do not use the keyword host-name.

Example:
configure log target syslog 10.58.36.210 format timestamp seconds date yyyy-mm-dd  tag-id tag-name
